We the People” are the first three words of the preamble that identify those responsible for upholding the foundations of the Constitution.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Their intent, decided by framers of the document, is laid out in the remainder of the preamble, which is: “in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”
The meaning of the Preamble has changed from when it was written to now. The meaning of it then was for wealthy, land-owning white males. As for today, the meaning for the preamle is for all United States citizens. All of that canged the civil rights movements and added amendments to the constitution.
